Preparing the Window Frames

The painter scrapes and sands the wood surfaces to remove old paint, leaving the areas clean and smooth. They also examine the frame for any surface or structural damage and determine if repairs are needed. The type of wood and its condition may dictate whether it needs a primer. Areas around the window may also need to be masked or covered to protect against paint spatters or drips.

Additional Costs

A professional painter carefully removes the first layer of trim to examine the interior of the window and frame. Any signs of water damage or insect infestations need to be addressed prior to painting. Any framework or surface areas that require repairs will be an additional cost to the project. If the window jamb does not move freely, some adjustments or repairs may be needed. The number and size of the window frames will also affect the project cost.

A Painting Professional

A professional painter has the experience to recognize problem areas in the frame and recommend repairs. Their knowledge of paint products helps the homeowner to choose the correct cleaning, priming and other options for specific window types. Their expertise help ensure that the primer and paint are applied uniformly giving the homeowner the best results.
